Cards in Medieval Lithuania, or the earliest pop culture in
Europe

For many centuries, playing cards looked quite different
from what they look now. It was not before the second half
of the 17th century that the French started producing cards
in manufactures by means of printing in response to the
growing demand for cards. The green cards (clubs and spades)
gradually turned into the black ones because the black
colour was more readily available. In addition to that, the
French-style pack of cards featured a queen instead of one
of the jacks.
